5 Award-Winning Sunscreens to Stock Up on This Summer

For our 24th annual Best Beauty Buys, we surveyed leading dermatologists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and manicurists to find out which products they can't get enough of. The votes are in: You'll want to clear a shelf for these 154 beauty game-changers. In the grand scheme of things, buying the wrong shade of nail polish isn't that big of a deal.

The votes are in: You'll want to clear a shelf for these 154 beauty game-changers. Buying beauty tools is nothing like choosing a new lipstick. Think about it: You can't test a laser hair removal device at Sephora before bringing it home, or take a flat iron for a test run. And then there's the cost factor. Both skin and hair tools don't exactly run cheap. These products are investments that you hope you'll be able to hang on to for years. To sum it up: It's tough to navigate what beauty tools are worth all of that coin.  That's where InStyle's Best Beauty Buys panel of dermatologists and hairstylists come in. We polled these pros to find out which skin and hair tools actually deliver on what they promise to do. Whether you're in the market for an at-home microdermabrasion device that'll save you from frequent in-office treatments, or a round brush that'll give your blowouts volume without any tugging, you'll find your new favorite tool here.  Keep scrolling for the 12 best beauty tools of 2019, according to our Best Beauty Buys panel.  VIDEO: Beauty Now: Facial Acupuncture
